Subject: Off the cuff answers reveal MLK, Jr. the man.
This recording of an impromtu press conference with Martin Luther King Jr. outside the Santa Rita jail provides yet another, very clear and unequivocal statement of his social vision near the end of his life. In just a few sentences he aligns the civil rights, worker's rights and the anti-war movements (not just Vietnam) as all parts of the same problem with plain, straight talk. It's no wonder that the political powers were terrified of his leadership. People believed in him and trusted him and the unscripted nature of this recording reveals that in a way that recordings in a more formal venue sometime fail to do.
